So clearly this is not an original thought WIAW was originated from Peas and Crayons and a lot of other bloggers have started doing it as well; and since I can’t be original and I really like the idea of doing this… I decided to give it whirl as well. This will pretty much be a mish-mash of stuff, some days I will try a new technique or perhaps I’ll be eating something for the first time as is the case today… and someday it might be leftover chili…who knows, and I guess that’s part of the fun. When I first started blogging it was to remain accountable with my exercise and food intake, so this is kind of takes me back… Very little of this is planned… but it’s 100% honest…I always want WIAW to be an accurate account of what I am eating. Not everyday I eat completely healthy, but more often than not I make healthy choices.
As always my Weight Watchers Points into the fold.
This week is a little different since I’m gonna be one day out of surgery, I’m not sure if I’ll be doing much of anything besides popping pills and sleeping…so this will be a Super Bowl Sunday Edition…. since it was a “special day” I wanted to eat party foods and I knew ahead of time that I was gonna have to use some of my 49
Since I have my Weight Watchers meetings on Sunday mornings I usually just have something light. Today I had 1 cup of Low-fat Strawberry Kefir drink . My breakfast was 4 points.
I don’t like carrots, but they are hard and crunchy and take a long time to eat… she I frequently have a bag (around 3oz) in my purse when I got out. And not long after that I had a banana. My snack was 0 points .
My Super Bowl snacks for a Super Bowl I didn’t watch…. yes I’m still bitter about the Packers losing, but whatever…. I also had donuts, I ate them totally forgot to take a picture. My lunch was 30 points (You have no idea had hard it was to write that)
So seriously points wise, I should have stopped eating…. but seriously who does that? I went back for more … this time for more.. this time more stuffed peppers and pot stickers and some veggie straws. My dinner was 15 points.
Since I’m all about being honest about what I’m eating…. I ate MORE…So I know by this point I’ve gone way over my points value… but I was still hungry and instead of eating more food (maybe a veggie) I had MORE snacks… more Veggie Straws (yep still addicted) and a Weight Watchers mini bar My snack was 5 points
My general caloric intake is 1200 calories per day, and today I consumed 1,783 calories; however I “earned” 512 calories (12 Weight Watchers activity points) from Shoveling the snow before and after my Weight Watchers meeting. I used a total of 54 Weight Watchers points (I KNOW!!!) Today was a prime example of what happens when you eat snacks all day and don’t have a meal… thank goodness the Super Bowl is only once a year.
The rule of thumb is that you are supposed to drink at least 8 and today I was able to get 8 cups, but with it being colder outside and me try to ramp of the workouts I should be getting more water in.. but I already feel like I’m constantly going to the bathroom as it is.
Until Next Time…
